india, not us. now we are talking about a recession. this is the first time it's been on the table. this is a recession caused by government. it is not caused by businesspeople. they want to build, they want to lend, they want to do anything possible to avoid this recession. the second half, we will be in recession if this is not resolved. recession means many fewer jobs, means far few taxes received, trillions dollars lost, i.r.a. and 401(k), trillions lost in job creation. i'm hearing about little amounts being saved here versus what will be lost in the next six months if this is not resolved. >> congressman, you've talked about something that is fundamental to this impasse, and i want to show it on the screen, because some polling indicates what americans oppose and what they support. this is what americans are for, if you look at the numbers. balanced budget amendment, which you supported. 74% of respondents. the cut, cap and balance amendment, with the spending caps and the like. but they're also for cuts and tax increases, that balanced approach. but here's what they're oppos

% to an effective 44.8% in 2013. when their competitors overseas in canada, in china, in india are paying a lot lower tax rate. that hurts job creation here. look, it's not the big companies anymore that are engaged in international competition. it's the small and medium businesses that are, too. we just feel that if we keep taxing our job creators, our businesses, at higher rates than our foreign competitors are taxing theirs, it will cost us economic growth. more to the point, when we keep raising taxes in washington, for ephemeral promises that never materialize, we are not fixing the problem. >> let me get to that topic. the "wall street journal" says even the $600 billion in spending cuts in stage one are worth grabbing as part of a debt ceiling vote. more broadly, democrats in the gang are making a big concession by saying the tax rate should go down, not up. >> i agree with that. >> even obama-care must be reformed. why not grab what you can? >> that's what i want to do. >> and worry about reducing the taxes down the road. >> i think that's what we're going to do. >> if they don't materi

in this room that care about india/u.s. relationships when it comes to aviation which, by the way, is pretty good. anybody else on this subject? >> yes, on the aviation subject, sir. >> okay. >> to what extent do you think it has been caught up in the tone and the rough-and-tumble of the overall debt ceiling aspect? >> you know, that's a good question. i don't happen to believe it has. because when i've talked to members of congress, particularly those that are in leadership, this really is, i think, some people's way of saying that these two issues that i mentioned, the eas, the essential air service and the union provision, they want to get to those. they want to get them solved. i think it can be done with a clean bill, another extension, i think it could be done very quickly with the discussions i've had with people in leadership in the house and senate, and i really hope that will happen. >> well, given the current situation, is there any hope that your issue is going to be handled before they deal with the debt ceiling issue? >> we've been listening to secretary ray lahood, transportat
